    jterry,

    Right click on My Computer, select Manage. Click Disk Management. Look and see if your dive is listed in the lower/right pane. If it is, see if it has a drive letter assigned. If no drive letter, right click the drive and select Change drive letter and path and then assign your usb drive a letter.
